i think i would have tried a DC series on Super Girl .. or a guest appearance her in a Superman Legacy, before doing the Super Girl solo.
I mean she just had a WB series which may have been " meh " to many superhero genre fans.

Did Kara Zor-El really move the needle among general public on the WB, that fan demand is such that she is ready for the big league solo flick ?

i agree that Shazam was probably a dart throw in the dark hope it'd be similar to Guardians of the Galaxy. action/comedy blend.
Only Marvel fan base is so massive enuff to gamble upon GOG, ..as opposed to Shazam.

Would have it been better planned if Shazam waited to show in the DC series, than he's own solo movie ?
Having Kara or Billy launch into the old DCEU from television into films would not have worked well in my opinion. Her alternate universe version was not integrated with what was happening on the big screen. Shazam! post-credit tie-in was brief but accurate. However, the movie’s overall light theme would not have meshed Batson into the dark themed DCEU.

Ultimately, I support James Gunn’s plan to start from scratch. Re-introduce Kal-El first. Bring Kara in later. BOTH via the big screen. Just like Wonder Woman, I do think a well-crafted intro will serve Supergirl in securing positive audience that can be built upon.

CBS was never committed to showcase Melissa Benoist on the small screen. Underwhelming episodic storylines. Very limited CGI budget. It did not surprise me how quickly CBS kicked the series to its WB sub-network. I would not want Gunn reminding audiences how Supergirl floundered on television. Her character should get a completely fresh start away from the small screen.

Gunn’s adopted plan makes certain the audience will not get a Clark Kent clone. Kara will be presented as her own person, who was molded into a hero BEFORE coming to Earth. Audiences will have the opportunity to know her under the best circumstance, which television would have a more difficult job of pulling off.

It may be considered as cold but I hope Gunn kills Shazam’s future in the new DCU. Supergirl can easily fill any perception void vacated by Billy Batson. Let him die after two movies max. No television. Nothing. Disappear. POOF!

Shazam works as a launching mechanism for Black Adam's intro...then kill off Billy Batson and leave Black Adam as an antagonist for others.

Jonathan Majors arrested on assault charge in New York

By Associated Press | AP
March 26, 2023


NEW YORK (AP) — The actor Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday in New York on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment, authorities said. On Sunday, an attorney for Majors said there’s evidence that he is “entirely innocent.”

New York City police said that Majors, star of the recently released “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman. Police responded around 11 a.m. Saturday to a 911 call inside an apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea.

“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” a spokesperson for the NYPD said in a statement. “Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”

A representative for Majors denied any wrongdoing by the actor.

But every so often a blockbuster comes along that resonates with the Academy and ultimately finds success in a number of categories.

Awesome, but she's 37, which is way too old for the part for a multi-movie run given that the character is close to immortal.

Much will depend upon how the case will be decided in the end.
It would be exceedingly easy to replace him if so given they've already established that alternate versions don't have to look the same or be the same age: Spider-man: No Way Home

It's going to be very hard to replace Margot Robbie, but...Lady Gaga? Maybe, but I don't have my hopes up.

I was watching how bad the john wick 4 trailer looked, and I remembered this keanu movie. Did anyone else like it? I thought it was really good.

I'll bet the House of Gucci Lady Gaga has zero chance of pulling off a better Harley Quinn than Margot Robbie, especially if her performance is set in a musical.

It looks good with great action and I have not seen it but it does not appear Reeves is the film's main protagonist. Kinda like he is a supporting character.

The reverse is true of the John Wick movies. The latest trailer may underwhelm but will Reeves? He has been the same through three movies so far, namely an unstoppable killing machine. Will John Wick 4 be any different?

He wasn't an unstoppable killing machine in the first one, which is the issues I have with the others. In the first one, if not for his assassin friend, he would have died multiple times. He was merely a top notch assassin.

The man of tai chi, is not a blockbuster movie, but the plot and idea is awesome. If you like martial arts fighting movies, you wont be disappointed with it.

I liked that movie. I watched most of it again fairly recently, it pops up now and again on Pluto TV's Flicks of Fury channel.
